Vivaldi’s Voices: A Conversation About Antonio Vivaldi’s Vocal Repertoire

3 aprile

In anticipation of Third Coast Baroque’s upcoming Vivica & Vivaldi concert series, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux sits down with TCB Artistic Director Rubén Dubrovsky to discuss the lesser-known but highly virtuosic gems of Antonio Vivaldi’s vocal repertoire. Vivaldi’s output included much more than his ever-popular “Four Seasons” with compositions ranging from solo cantatas to fully realized operatic productions. In an open discussion between singer and conductor, this Baroque icon’s vocal writing gets some well-deserved attention.

Vivica & Vivaldi will be presented at 7:30pm April 6 at Chicago Temple, 77 W
Washington St, Chicago, & 7:30pm April 7 at Galvin Recital Hall, 70 Arts
Circle Dr, Evanston. Friends of the Italian Cultural Institute can use promo code VIVALDI20 to receive 20% off General Admission tickets. To purchase tickets, please go to or call 872-216-1859.

Vivica Genaux:

Renowned as a thrilling interpreter of Baroque and bel canto repertories, mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux’s career has taken her from her native Alaska to virtually every corner of the globe. Following her professional debut in 1994, she has sung in the world’s greatest cities, expanding her operatic repertory to include more than sixty roles. During 2017, Vivica sang Malcolm in Rossini’s La donna del lago at the Salzburger Pfingsfestspiele. She also made role debuts in Cavalli’s La Calisto and Handel’s Lucio Cornelio Silla and Serse and founded and supervised the first course of V/Vox Academy. On the concert platform, she returned to the Windy City for appearances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Engagements in 2018 include performances in Europe and Asia, in addition to visits to metro Chicago and Miami. In December 2018, Vivica will debut in the role of Mandane in Hasse’s Artaserse with Australia’s Pinchgut Opera.

Rubén Dubrovsky:

Vienna-based conductor Rubén Dubrovsky was born into a Polish-Italian family of artists in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1999 this versatile artist co-founded the Bach Consort Wien, which has become one of Europe's most prestigious Baroque ensembles; and in 2016 he extended his reach to the United States with the creation of Third Coast Baroque. He has been featured on numerous international stages as an opera and orchestra conductor, with exceptional work in the repertoire of Handel and Mozart. In addition, one of Dubrovsky’s interests lies in examining the common links between African and Latin American folk music and European Baroque music. The 2015 television special “Bach to the Roots” showcased this emerging area of research, with the accompanying CD Vidala (Gramola) by the Bach Consort Wien receiving a nomination for the German Record Critics’ Prize (2016).

Third Coast Baroque:

Third Coast Baroque is a professional ensemble of "Chicago's most accomplished period instrumentalists and singers" (Chicago Tribune) with a mission to share the aesthetic of Baroque music while unlocking its relevance for today’s audiences. Under the direction of Artistic Director Rubén Dubrovsky, their 2016 debut was lauded for “accomplished performance and adroit scholarship that was emotionally compelling and educationally edifying" (Chicago Classical Review). Now, only in their second season, TCB welcomes international super-star Vivica Genaux for Vivica & Vivaldi (April 6 & 7) showcasing the unbridled virtuosity of Antonio Vivaldi’s vocal repertoire.
